Running during the summer, our Summer Internships offer high calibre students the opportunity to experience work and life at PwC, and gain a valuable insight into our business and culture. You’ll work alongside graduate trainees and experienced professionals on live and interesting client projects. You will be doing real work on real clients so be prepared to get stuck in.
Actuaries work with uncertainty. Join us and you’ll help clients analyse how future events could affect them. This could be anything from a corporate take-over to a major natural disaster. You might be calculating the impact of changing demographics or legislation on pension schemes; the effects that changes in financial markets have on different organisations; or how likely a business is to be hit by an earthquake.
In Pensions, you’ll work with a wide variety of companies, from large multinationals to private listed businesses. Using our market-leading pensions analytics tool and range of expertise, you'll help clients develop and implement their pension strategy or benefit schemes, consult on how they should manage both liability and asset risks within their pension plans, negotiate with trustees on how to fund schemes, , design plans to help employees save for retirement, advise on potential mergers or acquisitions, and account for their pension schemes.
What you’ll gain
You’ll find out first-hand if this is the career for you. If it is - and you perform well - you could go back to university with a graduate job offer. And you’ll certainly raise your commercial awareness and interpersonal skills to new levels. By experiencing life inside the world’s leading professional services organisation, you’ll develop many new skills and qualities that will be valuable whatever you choose to do.
What you need to get in
At PwC we no longer use UCAS tariff as an assessment tool for the majority of our undergraduate and graduate opportunities. However, the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries require you to have
Minimum Grade C in A Level mathematics or equivalent (Depending on your degree subject this A level requirement may be dropped)
In addition to this UCAS requirement, PwC also require you to be
In your penultimate year of an undergraduate or postgraduate degree; or
In your final year of an undergraduate degree with a one year postgraduate place confirmed; and on target for a 2.1 in any degree discipline
If you are unable to meet these UCAS requirements, we won’t be able to consider you for a role as an Actuary. Therefore, you may want to consider other programmes on offer which don’t have a UCAS tariff requirement.
